I have no clue about the thyroid stuff...But yes in tx , I did lose weight and maintained it off....Till recently....
low thyroid metabolism is slow = weight gain
overactive thyroid metabolism fast = weight loss
some times no weight change w/either
Hi. I am on week 9 of 24 and I have hyperthyrodism but but my weight is the same as before starting tx...162 lbs
So dont know if htyroids have anything to do with effect on weight
Who knows what will happen. What I do know is I sure would of liked to have lost.
I hardly eat at all,but I guess because I don't do too much any more the weight will stay. In my 8th week lost maybe 5 lbs. Never really had weight problems
Maybe if you have the ability to stay active you could loose weight. Thats something I need to work on. Ouch!
I really think it depends on if you have ever had any problems eating before tx, esp. if your an emmotional eater , believe me you are going to be able to eat...but the good thing is somehow the tx keeps you from really gaining alot, i guess it may speed you up a bit...
I guess the weight gain / loss, as some lose, some gain and some seem to stay the same. I personally am up to 49 lb weight loss. I can stand to lose that many more, so I am not complaining.. LOL I went thru treatment 14 years ago, and lost alot of weight, by the time tx was done, they put me on a high calorie diet, because I had lost so much. Then it came on so quick it was a problem, became diabetic , and have been fighting the weight ever since, till starting tx again 12/23/06. I currently did 19 / 48 on Friday. I also have severe anemia, so that has alot to do with the loss of weight I am sure.
Just be prepared to go either way.
I had no thyroid problems with tx. I lost some weight but I think I mostly maintained because of the high fat content of my diet. I ate less, but ate more fattening foods. I wanted the fat to help absorp the riba, and my taste changed to things that were easy to eat, like yogurt, peanut butter, oatmeal & ice cream. Plus I drank "light juice" which still has more calories than water.
I have lost 16 lbs. Dr. does not want me to lose anymore. Week 31/51
I have gained weight on TX so far. 20lbs actually I was wishing I could lose it. But for now I'll be happy with what i've got. Lately nothing sounds good or tastes good. I might eat a few crackes and cheese (3 or 4) and half a thing of yogert, and I'm full, for the day. so i may be on the down slope...
I have probably lost a couple of pounds. Nothing tastes good most of the time.
I have diarrhea after most of my shots now.
I try to eat just to put some calories in.
I do seem to like sweets the most and still eat chocolate nearly every day.
I lost 13 or 14 lbs in 13 weeks. Nothing tasted good except for cold mushy foods like ice cream and smoothies. I tried to take in sufficient calories, but still lost weight. Now, 5 weeks after stopping, I've gained back 4 lbs. Need to put on the brakes with the eating. Food is so delicious now. I just went to the Original Pancake House and ate en entire Dutch Baby. Yum, yum...
